Online PR News – 26-August-2013 – Madrid / Spain – New partnership with SAS will push the boundaries of revenue management technology

Amadeus is looking forward to working with Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) to migrate them to new revenue management solution whilst establishing a ‘Centre of Competence’ in the process.

In June of this year SAS will become the launch partner for Amadeus next generation Altéa Revenue Management solution, now incorporating full Origin & Destination-based capability.

To date eight airlines from around the world already work with Amadeus in order to improve their revenues and reduce their costs, and to this end SAS will migrate from its in-house Origin & Destination Revenue Management System (ODRMS) to our new solution by early 2015.

Revenue management is an increasingly important issue for airlines, and one which directly impacts their bottom line. For 20 years now SAS has pioneered O&D-based revenue management and demonstrated how this approach can secure strong benefits for airlines, whilst Amadeus have been investing continuously in this area since 2006.

Amadeus also welcome the 20+ SAS employees, many of whom are world-renowned experts in the field, to the company for working together to uniquely establish a revenue management ‘Centre of Competence’ in Copenhagen, Denmark. Those SAS employees involved in this project will officially join Amadeus from September 1st 2013.

This will allow Amadeus customers to benefit almost immediately from SAS’ unparalleled skillset in this field whilst ensuring that Amadeus is able to offer an on-going, shared resource of innovation and expertise which we believe will deliver not only revenue gains but also cost reductions and productivity increases for customers.
